He will present on December 1, 2021, in recognition of World AIDS Day.

Dr. DiClemente will discuss "Adolescents and HIV: A Hidden Population in Need of Prevention Services." In recognition of World AIDS Day (Dec. 1), he will focus on adolescent HIV risk and discuss advances in behavior change technology (e.g., the Apple watch, mobile devices, e-Health).

Before joining NYU, Dr. DiClemente was the Charles Howard Candler Professor of Public Health at the Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia. At Emory University, he held concurrent appointments as Professor in the School of Medicine, the Department of Pediatrics. Dr. DiClemente was Past President, Georgia chapter, Society for Adolescent Health & Medicine, and served as a member of the NIH Office of AIDS Research Advisory Council, the CDC Board of Scientific Counselors, and the NIMH Advisory Council. Dr. DiClemente’s research has three foci: (1) developing interventions to reduce the risk of HIV/STD among vulnerable adolescents and young adult women; (2) developing interventions to enhance vaccine uptake among high-risk adolescents and women, such as the HPV vaccine; and (3) developing implementation science interventions to improve the uptake, adoption, and sustainability of HIV/STD prevention programs in the community. He has developed 10 CDC-defined evidence-based interventions for vulnerable adolescents, young women, and men that CDC, SAMSHA, HHS have disseminated, domestically and globally. He has authored more than 600 peer-review publications and wrote or edited 20 books on HIV prevention, community-based research, research methods, adolescent health, global health promotion.
